It stank for me and was riddled with latency. I had to try 3 jre's before it would work. And their newest build of fedora supported was like fedora 3. I wasn't really serious about it but I was planning to have some fun then crash out in a later round before it got serious. It was like being on 1200 baud dialup all over again.
And I am not happy at giving a 3rd party supply contractor for a gov agency unsigned bean with a expired cert access at root level to my real boxen to install some tun/tap drivers and who knows what else via some black box java bean, so made a clean install. Another beef, they refused to document how it would work in advance. I mean, its not like we all do lots of research on a target in the real world learning things in advance in the wild and looking up the technologies and trying SE is it?
Strange way to run things, a java bean vpn with rdp to a backtrack virtual machine X desktop. Why couldn't they just give a ssh username/password out and bypass all that vpn nonsense? Maybe they want to recruit windows admins who cant use ssh unless its putty or know about running a local X server and forwarding X clients via ssh tunnels.
What think yea?
